    Hi, Doc! How else can I dress a wound if the Band-Aid seems to be an interesting object for the dog? He sniffs it and tries to get it out. I’m afraid he might eat it, too. But then when I take the Band-Aid off, we can’t have play time because my wound is exposed.

      Oh that’s a tough one because with Odie I think anything will be interesting for him and he will try to get it! If it’s on a hand, you could wear a latex glove, or if it’s on just one finger, you could try cutting a finger off the glove to fit snugly over the Band-Aid, but like I said this might be something that he finds interesting also. You could also just double up the bandaging with micropore bandaging tape (available at a drug store) – if done properly this might be more secure than just a band-aid.

      Thanks, Doc! I think I’m gonna go with micropore because I’m so sure the gloves would be eaten. I also thought of duct tape but I would also want to be able to take it off haha

    Thanks for this post. I had been bitten many times and I have done the same instructions here. But definitely after you are bitten you should visit your nearest Doctor or Vet.
